Close to work, schools, family and friends. A place you'd like to call home. There are plenty are factors to consider when selecting the area where you want to live.

Choosing between an old neighborhood and a new community is like choosing between a vintage car and this year's model. The older car may be charming, but may not be practical or economical...unless you've got a mechanic in the family. Engineers have spent years studying the human body to come up with the small conveniences and major innovations that make the new car more comfortable and easier on the environment.

And it's the same with new homes. And, new neighborhoods foster a sense of community you often won't see in an older area - a sort of pioneer spirit. Homeowners in a new neighborhood have a common bond, they've recently built their home and are committed to improving their family's quality of life.
